What’s Written vs. What’s Meant!

28 May

IT HAS LONG BEEN KNOWN… – I haven’t bothered to look up the original reference.

IT IS NOT UNREASONABLE TO ASSUME… – If you believe this, you’ll believe anything.

OF GREAT THEORETICAL AND PRACTICAL IMPORTANCE – Interesting to me.

TYPICAL RESULTS ARE SHOWN – The best results are shown.

PRESUMABLY AT LONGER TIMES… – I didn’t take the time to find out.

THESE RESULTS WILL BE REPORTED AT A LATER DATE – I might get around to this sometime.

IT IS BELIEVED THAT… – I think.

IT IS GENERALLY ACCEPTED THAT… – A guy in a bar once agreed with me.

IT IS WIDESPREAD KNOWLEDGE THAT… – Two guys in a bar agreed with me.

IT IS UNIVERSALLY ACCEPTED THAT... – The bartender agreed too.

IT IS CLEAR THAT MUCH ADDITIONAL WORK WILL BE REQUIRED BEFORE A COMPLETE UNDERSTANDING… – I don’t understand.

DATA HAS BEEN NORMALISED… – You wouldn’t believe the numbers I got.

STATISTICAL ANALYSIS REVEALS… – I had to lie a bit.

DATA PROCESSING PROCEDURES WERE IMPLEMENTED… – I had to lie a lot.
